We have an easy text to donate feature. Text NASHJAZZ to 44-321
Duffy Jackson is a legend of jazz drumming, and has powered some of the all time great big bands, including those of Count Basie, Artie Shaw, Lionel Hampton, and Illinois Jacquet. The son of legendary bassist Chubby Jackson, he has played with the legends of the music his entire life. There are very few people alive who can swing a band like Duffy can, and we are not only lucky enough to have him in Nashville, but he led his own big band that performed regularly in the Jazz Cave. The band included many of Nashville’s finest musicians, and this performance from 2012 also featured NJW founders Lori Mechem and Roger Spencer in the rhythm section!
We’ve temporarily suspended in-person events at NJW, but we’re supporting the community through online classes and streamed performances during this unsure time. While we are still fulfilling our mission, income from these online activities is not enough to pay the bills, and we need additional support from the community.
All donations for the Wednesday streams go directly to the artists, who also badly need the support. For the Friday streams, ‘From The Archives’, please make a donation to NJW to support the work that goes into curating, editing, and streaming them so we can continue to offer them!
